K3 SYSPRO wins contract to help global textile company with diverse product range and future growth


A North West company with a diverse range of products from industrial equipment to specialist environmental services, has chosen the technology experts K3 Syspro to set up systems to run, revolutionise and integrate the business from shop floor to accounts.

BMP Europe, based in Accrington, said it chose SYSPRO because of its simplicity, ease of navigation, and its proactive approach and ability to understand the company's complex needs. BMP Europe is a subsidiary of the Andrew Group.

The group specialises in the manufacturing and conversion of technical non-woven textiles and engineered polyurethane elastomers for everything from offshore subsea cables and renewable energy to office printers for their customers worldwide.

BMP also provides specialist environmental services such as Remanufacturing and Asset Recovery.

David Pilling, IT Manager, BMP Europe Ltd, said: "SYSPRO is a flexible, functionally rich and well developed modern product that can deal with our diverse product ranges and allow for our future growth. We were very impressed with the SYSPRO software. It has clear and simple navigation, tailorable screens, excellent import/export functionality and K3's ability to physically demonstrate how simply the software could be manipulated for our needs.

"We believe working with K3 Syspro will enable us to revolutionise our warehouse working practices, providing us with live shop floor data in our manufacturing department. The scope of modules and K3's experience will give us the ability to consolidate many of our systems which are presently independent of each other. It will provide us with one port of call for all Project Development, Sales, Manufacturing, Accounts, Logistics, and Warehousing activities.

"This will give our users a more valuable and efficient experience. In particular, we were very impressed by SYSPRO's Forecasting and Warehousing functionality."

Mr Pilling said the company had worked with other divisions of the K3 group in the past and had always been impressed by K3's high quality of service.

Glen Burdett, Sales Director at K3 Syspro, said: "Helping BMP consolidate their systems, where they have such a diverse range of products and services, was an interesting project. We were keen to work with such a forward thinking company, which is looking to grow and to use our software to help them achieve these aims. We have worked with BMP in the past and are pleased K3 SYSPRO will be part of their onward and upward journey."
